Traditional king cake is the most overrated food in New Orleans.

But the Elvis from the butcher is amazing.

Does Meche's still exist? They had pretty good King Cakes back in the day.

What about Navarre's Famous King Cakes in Springfield? Are they worth the drive from BR if you just like plain cinnamon?

Dad's Donuts and Deli in Franklinton had the best king cakes (and roast beef poboys) in the history of the world....but that sumbitch closed down a good long time ago.

Yeah baw, the one on gulibeaux road is the one we usually always go to. The one in Breaux Bridge and a few other are now called cajun market donut co. But it’s the same thing

There's a place in Picayune, MS called Paul's Pastry Shop that's supposed to make good king cakes, but I've never tried one. We went by there once while driving from Hattiesburg to New Orleans, but they were closed that day.

Anybody ever try a king cake from them?

Not a fan of the overfilled kind oozing stuff that’s the consistency of cheap canned pie filling

Maurice’s uses fresh cream, whipped to perfection. Aka, goat’s cream.

I was pleasantly surprised with Bywater Bakery’s last season and it was only their first year open.

ETA: Here is their chantilly king cake pictured with Parleaux’s cardamom coconut porter (photo taken today from their Facebook page)

Good to know. I read about it recently. Frank Brigtsen has recommended it, also.

I would like to order a praline cream cheese king cake from somewhere. Anybody know who would ship one to me in Jackson?

If you live around Jackson, I recommend Broad Street Bakery for their almond cream cheese cake.
